Susan Lucci is a guest on the Wednesday July 10th episode of the afternoon syndicated talk show Katie with host Katie Couric.

She is on hand to promote the success of her new hit series, Devious Maids airing on Lifetime.  However, Katie did pose the question to Susan if a return to All My Children and the revival of the series via Prospect Park is still something she hopes to be able to do at least to make a guest star appearance as Erica Kane?  Susan responded, “I certainly would. We are hoping that it can happen. They are on hiatus right now.”

Katie then asked if Susan has had conversations with anyone about returning to which she responded, “Agnes (Nixon) and I just spoke last week.  As I said, they are no hiatus, but now that I am back from Atlanta where I had been shooting Devious Maids all season, and now that I am back here in New York, they are on hiatus.   So it’s a matter of trying to make it happen and hopefully, we will.”

Watch the preview clip from Katie after the jump featuring Susan Lucci.  Do you think Susan will work things  out with the powers-that-be at Prospect Park, so she can make a return to the series sooner than later? Especially, now that Devious Maids has wrapped shooting and AMC goes back into production in August? Weigh-in!

Please, Ms. Lucci make a return to AMC. Now that Kendall returned albeit briefly, it’s time for another Kane woman to make a stop in Pine Valley. Even if it was recurring like Dr. Joe and Adam, it would be welcomed.

Okay let’s just make it happen folks. AMC needs Erica. Make it big; make it splashy; make it Erica Kane. To bring int he viewers they open up Pine valley museum a tribute to the town’s past characters (Phoebe, Mona, Dr. Tyler, Palmer et al) and of course erica kane who is thought to be shot and killed only…it is really Jane the dopplegange who escaped prison and was never captured. Erica finally escapes only to see the town and Jackson muorning their loss.She manages to rise from the ashes and come in as Jack declares his love for her.… Read more »

I am struck, once again, how beautiful SL looks! Stunning. Really hope she returns to AMC for any length of time. They film fast and furiously, so SL could be in a LOT of story line 🙂

Erica make your return happen! Remember you are Erica Kane and as you always state, “I can do anything I put my mind to”. So, where’s your mind? Pine Valley?

I’d love to see Erica back on the show. We need more Kanes in Pine Valley. I wasn’t sure AMC needed Erica when the reboot first launched, but with the focus on so many teens and newer characters, I miss Erica and Kendall and Bianca, who are secondary when they should be leads. I know Eden Riegel is pregnant in real life but I hope she can return soon, along with Alicia Minshew for more than one eppy.

I am sure Susan and PP will be able to work out their schedules and we will see Erica in Pine Valley again. Her character is not one of the main ones on Devious Maids and hopefully she can film in Stamford this August. Let her tape out of sequence so we can see her for as long as possible! 🙂

Not quite, we still need Ryan and Greenlee back. Also need Adam to reappear to give Brooke a better storyline and keep J.R. in check.

I hope she can return to AMC as the iconic Erica Kane. The show centers way too much on Celia and Petey, and I’m sorry but they are just not all that fascinating. I think they need the more experienced and seasoned actors to the forefront to make the show really work – and right now, the show really needs some stronger leads and some better writing – However, I hope she (Susan Lucci) can return as Erica for more than just a quick “cameo” guest spot.

Definitely want Erica back if even for a short time. Given AMC’s shooting schedule, she could come in and out on occasion.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
